. motor trend's 2013 truck of the year. >>> republican senator lindsay graham vowing no confirmation without information. he says president obama's picks should not go forward until the president provides more details on the benghazi terror attack. fox has more. >> there could be an attempt to hold up two important nominations until the white house answers more questions about benghazi. during that attack on libya senator lindsay graham wants to know whether the president reached out personally to libyan leaders. he says the nominations of chuck hagel and john brennan could be sidetracked. graham has serious concerns about whether the president did enough to stop the attack that killed four americans. >> i do believe if he had picked up the phone, called the libyan government, these folks could have gotten out of the airport, to the annex, and the last two guys may very well be alive, and if he did call the libyan officials and they sort of blew him off that will affect whether or not i would give foreign and in the future to libya, but if he failed to call, on behalf of those people
and the upper chamber. >> but he has such a strong personal relationship with lindsay graham, and lindsay graham is so personally invested in his 2014 re-election and being seen as the guy who is fighting the obama administration on this, so i kind of feel like -- it's just a guess, but my thought is that graham will eventually drop it. that will allow mccain to drop it. that will allow them to follow suit. then you have a new precedent. let's say you get to the floor with this vote, and it's 55-45 or 57-43. a party line vote is not entirely new, but that's close to a new phenomenon too for defense secretary for a cabinet nominee, and if that becomes the new rule for cabinet nominees going forward, what happens when the next president comes along and his or her party does not control the senate. if that's the new norm that's established, you have a big problem there. >> oh. >> no different from the senate. remember, john mccain was the guy who negotiated that deal to stop the nuclear option before? remember, he was the one that stood in the way of the very idea of filibustering cabinet nominees,
late. >> lindsay graham a very direct message to the white house. no confirmation without information about the benghazi terror attack. >> good morning kelly. >> he is not satisfied with what he heard from officials will the attack at benghazi. he vowed he is going to get to the bottom of it even if it means blocking the confirmations of the secretary of defense as well as the cia director all important decisions that need to be fulfilled. he believes president obama cause disengaged during the attack in benghazi that he could have done more to help save the lives of chris stevens. he could wihave place add phone call request with the president of libya and demand they be allowed to rescue americans under the attack at the consulate on the night of september 11th. >> i don't believe we should let brennan or hagel be confirmed until the white house gives us an accounting. if the president ever calls anybody on the phone to help these folks? what did the president do? the families need to know the american people need to know. >> it is not unwarranted to stop for attempt to try and stop
politics. that statement followed republican senator lindsay graham's vow on face the nation to block the nominations of john brennan and chuck hagel pending more answers on the attacks in benghazi last september. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting. >> jeff: there are still 102,000 coalition troops in afghanistan. and today marked a change of command for them. marine general john all when who is in line to become nato's supreme european commander passed the baton to marine general joseph dunford in a ceremony at coalition headquarters in kabul. dharlie-- charlie d'agata was there. >> reporter: this morning general john allen gave up command to fellow marine joseph dunford in an emotional event that at times sound more like a defiant victory speech than a handover ceremony. >> afghan force-- afghan forces defending afghan people and enabling the government of this country to serve its citizens. this is victory, this is what winning looks like. and we s
